Weight Loss Surgery
It’s Not Just Weight Loss.
It’s Health Gain.
Being overweight or obese is one of the leading risk factors for ill health in Australia. The longer you live with obesity, the greater the negative effect on your physical health, mental health and wellbeing.
Unfortunately, diets will never work for many people and this when Weight loss surgery (also known as Bariatric or Obesity Surgery) can help you achieve lasting results. These surgeries have continued to advance with research and technology and are safe and effective.
Surgery works by influencing hunger and the way in which the body process food/calories. It is expected that following weight loss surgery, a patient is able to eat every day normal healthy food (in a smaller quantity), participate in normal every day activities and enjoy a great quality of life.
